British beaches that might surprise you
1. St Ives, Cornwall
A holiday to Britain will usually involve a trip to the world famous capital city of London, which is known for its urban city feel, beautiful sights and towers, good food and fashion, as well as black cabs and red buses. However, not all visits to Britain need to involve London at all. In actual fact, if you’re planning a summer vacation and wouldn’t mind a more cooling breeze and sun, with the sand and sea at the same time, then our beaches listed here might be perfect for you. We’ve collected a series of beaches in Britain that you won’t believe are actually part of the UK, instead, these images will have you believe it’s either part of the Mediterranean or Caribbean. Britain is a coastal region, which means it’ll have beaches regardless of climate, and while for a majority of the year it’ll be grey and gloomy, catch it on the right day and you’ll be more than surprised.
